The Tombstone (inventory recovery after death)
MOD ID=1139981401
Get your inventory back after death.

Fix for not placed Tombstone in Extinction
Fix for wrong Slot Position of same item types after respawn

This mod places a tombestone at the location where you died automatically.
This tombestone has an inventory and can only be accessed and destroyed by the owner or tribe, but it does not have any collision.
When you die, your inventory is transferred to the tombstones inventory.
When you respawn you get your items back from the tombstones inventory. You can disable this feature (see below).
As default the Tombstone stays in game forever, but can be destroyed by the owner or if the inventory is emptied (see ini settings below)
In the case that the game is unable to spawn the tombstone, the death corpse will be accessible as in the standard game play.

This mod is useful for all players who have difficulties to get there items back from the death corpse.

To customize the behaviour of the tombstone you can enter the following ini entries (all entries are optional).
Put more than one entry under one [TheTombstone] paragraph.
[TheTombstone] KeepInventoryOnDeath=True/False
default: True
Respawning after players death, the inventory of the players tombstone is transferred to the player.

[TheTombstone] DestroyGravestoneWhenEmpty=True/False
default: False
If True, the tombstone is destroyed if the inventory of the tombstone is emptied.
It will not be destroyed if the player carried nothing.

[TheTombstone] OneTombstonePerPlayer=True/False
default: False
True: only the last tombstone stays in game for each player, all other will be destroyed automatically (to prevent spamming tombstones due to lot of deaths)

[TheTombstone] AutoDestroyAfterSeconds=[value]
default: 0.0
setting this option to a value higher than 0 will auto destroy the gravestone after [value] seconds.
the default setting disables "auto destroy after seconds".
example: AutoDestroyAfterSeconds=345600 will auto destroy the gravestone after 4 days (4*60*60*24)

Hi, I'm trying to get a mod to only save equipped items, e.g; the Toolbar and Clothing, and drop everything else on death. I was wondering if your mod could do this or be modified to?

@X_x i did not make an update since November 2018. This mod is still working. I think you have a problem with your server and you need to update the mod on your server

Can I share the source file, big guy

@UncleYar the first tombstone will drop its inventory after dying a second time, so can find the dropped things as long as the dropped backpack stays in game - like the vanilla game

@Grebog Ah yes, I forgot to specify I want to play with KeepInventoryOnDeath=False so there's still some challenge to recover items. So just to confirm, if I combined this with OneTombstonePerPlayer=True, and I die twice in a row without opening a tombstone, it means I lose all items from the first death? I guess I'll just let tombstones multiply in that case - item loss kind of defeats the point of this mod IMO.

@UncleYar only the last placed tombstone hold the items from ypur last death. but only if "KeepInventoryOnDeath" is set to False, default is True. In the default case the items are transferred into the players inventory and do not stay in any tombstone.

Your mod looks very interesting. Does OneTombstonePerPlayer=True make you lose all items that were in the previous tombstone when you die again without recovering your items first, or do they all get transferred to the latest tombstone?
